I meant Dishonored, not Prey...
was their last good game series. Seems they forgot everything they knew back then. I wonder what the devs who left ended up doing.
Oh, I know, I will call it Star failed
Arkane split into two studios based in Lyon France and Austin US, as I understand it they work independently of each other on games in the last 10 years or so.
Austin made Redfall, and Prey. Dishonored, Deathloop, Wolfenstein Youngblood came from the Lyon team.
Prey was a very good game, but they screwed up the marketing which didnt help. Bethesda management made them change the name to Prey, people thought it was something to do with the old shooter Prey from like 2006.
Raphael Colantonio said nobody at Arkane wanted to use the title, but Bethesda gave it no choice—which is part of why he left.
Creatives annoyed, market confused, top level management clueless as to anything other than the immediate bottom line. Sounds about right, we're seeing the fruits of that now.
